"They're expensive for them": Russian goalie said that in the U.S. "a lot of people don't have washing machines"
Goalkeeper of Moscow "Dynamo" Igor Leshchuk called most Americans poor people whose apartments and houses do not have washing machines. The footballer of the aggressor country, whose so-called military were stealing household appliances from the homes of Ukrainians, called such a situation in the U.S. strange.
Leshchuk said this in an interview with RB Sport portal. The 27-year-old athlete, who made a scandal at the airport in New York with the words "soon we will fly to you with Russian passports" during his trip to the USA, complained about the service in America.
"It's different for them. When I needed to do laundry, I had to turn in my clothes at the hotel or go to a laundromat, where it's cheaper. It's just like in the movies: you come to a room, it's all in washing machines. People do their laundry by the suitcase. A lot of people in America don't have washing machines because they are expensive for them. It is strange to me when there is no washing machine, because I think everybody should have one. It's different in America," Leshchuk said.
Earlier, State Duma deputy Dmitry Svishev demanded that the European Football Union (UEFA) and the International Football Federation (FIFA) "issue a warning to the Ukrainians" for demanding that Russia be excluded from its membership.
As reported by OBOZREVATEL, the RFU accused UEFA that the European organization "too quickly" decided to exclude teams from Russia from its tournaments after the start of the war in Ukraine.
